Convenience, not Compromise

Everyone loves the convenience of digital audio. Nobody enjoys the compromises digital audio playback sometimes involves. That’s why the CXN (V2) is designed to provide the effortless accessibility of digital audio, but with the uncompromised sonic excellence of Cambridge’s 50-plus years of hi-fi experience. Ease of use meets quality of performance.

The World’s Music, Any Way You Want It

Digital audio is available from many sources - and CXN (V2) is able to deliver from those you love most. Spotify Connect, Apple AirPlay 2 and Tidal offer a world’s-worth of content, there’s Chromecast built-in to make things even easier, and the CXN (V2) is Roon Tested which means your NAS and UPnP audio is at your fingertips too. Add digital optical and coaxial inputs, asynchronous USB socket, aptX Bluetooth (via adapter) and internet radio, and CXN (V2) brings the planet’s music into your home.

The Whole Story

Getting hold of the music you want is one thing. Being moved by the fidelity of its reproduction is quite another. That’s why CXN (V2) is packing dual Wolfson WM8740 digital-to-analogue convertors - by upscaling any digital audio information to an information-packed 24bit/384kHz using Cambridge’s unique ATF2 technology, music is delivered with the sort of warmth, depth, nuance and unity not automatically associated with digital audio.

Power In Your Hands

CXN (V2) features prodigious processing power, quite unlike that of any nominal rival. Cambridge’s renowned Stream Magic platform ensures a slick, seamless and stable listening experience from any source, and its out-of-the-box mpeg-DASH and HLS compatibility means live streams are equally consistent and of equally high quality.  

Control: Pure, Simple And Complete

Interacting with CXN (V2) couldn’t be simpler or more satisfying. The bespoke Cambridge Audio Stream Magic app allows straightforward, stable and intuitive control of all connected sources - curate playlists, set presets or browse albums conveniently and in comfort. Then allow the big, colorful and crisp fascia display to show your commands or the album artwork of the music you’re enjoying.

Making The Best Even Better, constantly

Four What Hi-Fi? Awards in a row speaks volumes about how well-loved the CXN (v2) is - but Cambridge is always searching for ways to improve. A constant program of development, a constant desire to seek out marginal gains in performance, and the ability to update the CXN (v2) remotely, as and when it’s required, means the best network audio streamer around just keeps getting better.

Almost perfect
The CXN V2 is almost perfect. The reason for 4 stars and not 5 is that I can’t WiFi my Apple Music from my phone to the streamer.

I read a lot of reviews online about this offering the best digital streaming that featured a great DAC and good user experience. I was looking for something that would unlock Tidal MQA (Master) quality for my HiFi system.

Is this series 1 or 2 of CXN ?
A shopper on Nov 4, 2019
  The V2 indicated that it is Version/Series 2.
I have a CXA81, will the old Wolfsen DAC inhibit the sound from the CXA81's Sabre DAC?
A shopper on May 19, 2020
  Thanks for your question. We cant objectively compare the sound of different DACs. If your preference is the Sabre DAC in the CXA81 you may want to use the CXN digital output into the CXA81 digital input. The CXN owners manual states that the digital output allows a separate DAC.
The Product Information describes the Cambridge Audio CXN (v2) as 'upscaling any digital audio information to an information-packed 24bit/384kHz ' - does that include an SSD connected via USB? Can you expand on that description?
A shopper on Mar 11, 2020
  Thanks for your question. The Cambridge upscales any digital audio to 24bit/384kHz, including an SSD connected via USB. As the SSD is only a storage device the CXN will upscale any applicable contained files to a maximum of 24/384. We are unable to contact Cambridge at the present time to provide any further explanation.
